Abstract
This report describes the work performed and results obtained during a field demonstration of a remote sealing system at the Bureau of Mines Jenny Mine near Inez, Kentucky, in the fall of 1978. Although portions of the remote sealing system has been used on a number of prior occasions, the demonstration at jenny mine marked the first use of the complete upgraded system including the use of an inert gas generating system for seal placement and the first application of a new froth foam system. The objective of the demonstration was to demonstrate the complete system by emplacing and evaluating several complete underground seals under conditions representing those of a mine fire situation. Of several critical sealing conditions identified, including high entry air flow, standing water in the entry, flowing water, irregular roof, and sealing a four-way intersection, four seals were successfully placed.
